13 editions published between 2001 and 2009 in English and held by 391 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pioneers in life writing, Mary Wollstonecraft, author of A Vindication of the Rights of Woman (1792), and Mary Shelley, author of Frankenstein (1818), are now widely regarded as two of the leading writers of the Romantic period.

Mapping our selves : Canadian women's autobiography in English by Helen M Buss( Book )

21 editions published between 1993 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 357 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Mapping Our Selves Helen Buss considers a broad range of autobiographical works written by Canadian women, including memoirs, journals, and conventional autobiography as well as experiments in blending a number of writing genres. She constructs her own "mapping" theory of how female identity is formed in order to illustrate how identity can be understood through the relationship between writer, text, and reader

Repossessing the world : reading memoirs by contemporary women by Helen M Buss( Book )

14 editions published between 2001 and 2006 in English and held by 316 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Why does it seem as if everyone is writing memoirs, and particularly women? The current popularity of memoir verifies the common belief that we each have a story to tell. And we do ... especially women. Memoirs are not only representations of women's personal lives but also of their desire to repossess important parts of our culture, in which women's stories have not mattered. Beginning with her own motivations for writing memoirs, Helen M. Buss examines the many kinds of memoir written by contemporary women: memoirs about growing up, memoirs about traumatic events, about relationships, abo
Working in women's archives : researching women's private literature and archival documents by Marlene Kadar( Book )

10 editions published between 2000 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 252 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"What Comes to mind when we hear that a friend or colleague is studying unpublished documents in a celebrated author's archive? We might assume that they are reading factual documents or, at the very least, straightforward accounts of the truth about someone or some event. But are they?" "Working in Women's Archives is a collection of essays that poses this question and offers a variety of answers. Any assumption readers may have about the archive as a neutral library space or about the archival document as a simple and pure text is challenged." "In essays discussing celebrated Canadian authors such as Marian Engel and L.M. Montgomery, as well as lesser-known writers such as Constance Kerr Sissons and Marie Rose Smith, Working in Women's Archives persuades us that our research methods must be revised and refined in order to create a scholarly place for a greater variety of archival subjects and to accurately represent them in current feminist and poststructuralist theories."--Jacket
Undelivered letters to Hudson's Bay Company men on the Northwest Coast of America, 1830-57 by Judith Hudson Beattie( Book )

16 editions published between 2002 and 2008 in English and held by 216 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the early nineteenth century, when the Hudson's Bay Company sent men to its posts along the coast of North America's Pacific Northwest, letters from loved ones followed in the company's supply ships. The messages from a mother or father, a wife or sweetheart travelled for many months from London, around the southernmost tip of South America, and north to isolated trading posts. By the time a letter carrying the news and gossip from home reached its destination, it might well miss the man meant to read it. The Company returned these letters to its London office, and over the years an "undelivered letters" file built up. Many remained sealed for 150 years." "Beattie and Buss invite us into the lives of the letter writers, threading together their words with contemporary explanations. This unique collection of letters will be compelling reading for social historians, literary scholars, genealogists, students of the fur trade, and anyone interested in British and North American culture of the period. The news of everyday life - from parents on farms and in towns, sisters in domestic service, brothers and friends in trade - reaches out across two centuries to speak with us with startling immediacy."--Jacket

How does the imagination entwine the shreds of memory of family, place and culture to root a self in the fluid experience of the present? Daughter, wife, mother, teacher, writer and feminist academic, Helen M. Buss / Margaret Clarke has lived in many parts of Canada and writes from a life of multiple perspectives full of contradictory loyalties and obligations, of opposing histories and identities. For this woman, whose sense of a unified identity is so tenuous that she even writes under two names, writing memoirs becomes the way to bring together the diverse strands of her life. A Newfou
